I’m not sure if I like either of these songs as songs, but I dug the videos.
First up, Owl City’s “Fireflies” which has a dude playing the song in a retro kids room full of toys. I spotted Robo Sapien, Speak and Spell and a bunch more, it’s good stuff:
Second, I was struck by the unique animated style of this Death Cab For Cutie video yesterday morning, though, for the life of me, I couldn’t remember the name of the band until well over 24 hours later. I was only able to remember it based on the director’s last name being Robot (his name’s Walter Robot and his site‘s pretty rad). The song’s called “Grapevine Fires.”
